This thrilling conclusion to the Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman trilogy recounts the climactic events of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice from its enigmatic hero's point of view. One of the most beloved romantic heroes in all of literature, Fitzwilliam Darcy remains an enigma even to Jane Austen's most devoted fans. But with this concluding volume in the Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman trilogy, novelist and Austen aficionada Pamela Aidan at last gives readers the man in full. These Three Remain follows a humbled Darcy on the journey of self-discovery after Elizabeth Bennet's rejection of his marriage proposal, in which he endeavors to grow into the kind of gentleman he's always dreamed of being. Happily, a chance meeting with Elizabeth during a tour of his estate in Derbyshire offers Darcy a new opportunity to press his suit, but his newfound strengths are put to the test by an old nemesis, George Wickham. Vividly capturing the colorful historical and political milieu of the Regency era, Aidan writes in a style evocative of her literary progenitor, but with a wit and humor very much her own. While staying faithful to the people and events in Austen's original, she adds her own fascinating cast of characters, weaving a rich tapestry out of Darcy's past and present that will beguile his admirers anew.… (mer)

Whenever Aidan strayed too far off the familiar path, I tended to lose interest but overall I really enjoyed having Darcy's perspective on familiar events (even if I still think that Mr. Darcy is one of Austen's dullest leading men). I would really like it if she wrote a book from Bingley's perspective, since I like him the best other than Lizzie. But I guess it wouldn't be that interesting since he's mostly just hanging out with his terrible sisters. Poor Bingley. ( )

Loved this third book in the set. Thought the way Darcy came to his realizations and his feelings were well-thought out by the author. It was a great end, though I DO wish that there was a little more at the end. I guess I'll have to read Austen's original novel for that! ( )

I do love me some Pride and Prejudice retellings! Pamela Aiden's offerings introduce us to some charming new characters and broadens our knowledge of others...a fun, light read. By this third book the reader gets a little tired of Darcy's self-reflection, but the supporting characters play a larger role and leave us wanting to know more about their lives. ( )

These Three Remain is the final novel in Pamela Aidan's retelling of Pride & Prejudice from Darcy's perspective, and probably the most enjoyable. Most of it has to do with the fact that we get to see Elizabeth again and everything that has been building finally reaches its conclusion.

To tell this story, Aidan had several obstacles to overcome, the foremost of which was how Darcy could have so misread Elizabeth's responses to actually think she was eager to receive his addresses and would reply in the affirmative when asked for her hand at Hunsford. Despite some overly dramatic moments in the writing style (throughout), I think she manages it rather well, staying within the confines of Austen's story.

It's also pleasing to see Darcy truly start to change. Some adaptations present him as perfectly virtuous from the start, just misunderstood, but in Austen's novel he really does have to examine his life and work to remove his faults. Despite his many good qualities, his pride was improper and his outlook on the world selfish. Through Elizabeth's reproofs he comes to realize these unpleasant facts and sets about changing them.

The most telling thing in favor of this novel is that it made me want more. Come on, this was published back in 2005 and the author said she wanted to write more books focusing on the Darcys and especially Georgiana — where are they? Why didn't Aidan continue writing?

I said this in my review of An Assembly Such as This as well: I feel like I've experienced Darcy's transformation in microcosm, going from an unwilling participant to avowed fan. Aidan's contribution to the Austenian world can never approach the level of the original works, but neither can any other retelling, reimagining, or fan fiction piece. That doesn't mean I can't enjoy it and recommend it to other Austen readers who yearn for just a little more about these beloved characters. ( )

Bellissima conclusione di questa fedele interpretazione del romanzo Orgoglio e Pregiudizio visto dal punto di vista di Mr. Darcy.
In alcuni punti ho trovato Darcy leggermente fuori dal tracciato lasciato da Miss Austen, forse troppo damerino o, meglio, fin troppo aperto ad esporre i suoi sentimenti ad amici e servitori.

Bella la figura di Fletcher, che rappresenta in un certo senso la "coscienza" inconsapevole del suo signore.

Molto affascinante, anche se poco credibile, il personaggio di Dy, l'amico - quasi fratello maggiore visto il comportamento paternalistico - di Darcy e Miss Darcy.

E personaggio assolutamente e completamente riuscito è stato anche Giorgiana con quella forte, ma rispettosa, fragilità che la rende un personaggio assolutamente amabile.

Bella la conclusione con il doppio matrimonio che ricalca fedelmente il romanzo originale, come molto bello è stato tutta la ricerca e l'opera di salvataggio della dignità della famiglia Bennett fatta da Mr Darcy in nome dell'amore della sua Liz.

"Heigh-up, there!" James the coachman's voice rang out in its familiar timbr, urging the team pulling Darcy's traveling coach to put to in their harnesses and take them through the tollgate out of London and on to the road to Kent.
